TV is the major distraction in the life of a student today. These days students find an easy way to spend time by watching TV and are less interested in reading. but......... television is not as bad as people think it can be taken as a source of knowledge too......... .Televi…sion is an important form of communication and has been for many years. Television brings important historical events, both positive and negative, directly into our homes. People don't just read about current events, they experience them in real time. Television can also be a fine teaching tool - there are many television shows on the air that are informative and educational. The right television shows can teach our children about morals and values as well as right from wrong. Educational television is not only for children however; Public television as well as cable television channels such as National Geographic and The History Channel serve as learning tools for adults. In fact many use local channels to provide distance learners the opportunity to attend lectures given on television. (MORE)

Plastics are both a boon and a bane. They are a boon because theyhave allowed numerous advances in technology and medicine. They area bane because they are not recycled that often, and end up takingup space in landfills and becoming pollutants.
Fashion is almost another thing of pride. It might be needed or notneeded. It is the individuals who like it and on the whole there isno opinion.
Is cell phone to a teenager is a boon, because most teenagers lead socially active lives, and talk and text a lot, mostly using their cell phones in privacy. It is not a bane to a teenager, but if used excessively and out of control, it can become a bane to others, but not the teenager. .
Boon vs Bane Simply put a boon is a "blessing. A bane is "something causing misery." So, is a computer a boon or a bane? I believe that it is a boon. Think about all the opportunities a computer has created, think about how much easier life is with the computer. Because of computers I can: . find… an answer on answers.com easily, . answers.com exists because of a computer . get money from the bank without having to stand in line and wait for a teller to open up. . go shopping without money in my wallet . take a college course without having to sit in a classroom Because of computers, the physically challenged can communicate with us and impart their knowledge and insight (e.g. Steven Hawkings). Shared databases and improved communication mean that law enforcement apprehends more criminals. Vast quantities of information of all sorts is at our fingertips. It is easy to see how much of a blessing the computer has been, as opposed to how much misery it may have caused. --- There are three main drawbacks to the utility and convenience provided by computers: their economic effects, their social impact, and their use to cause harm. Of course, any widely used technology is going to have negative consequences. Drugs, cars and guns can kill people when misused. Computers can create and erase employment opportunities, seemingly overnight. They can further erode the benefits of education: an increasingly large number of individuals cannot do simple math without a calculator. They can promote social interaction, but can also foster anonymous disrespect, or engage an entire generation in virtual pursuits that often seem to take precedence over real life concerns. They can extend the reach of criminal activity (fraud, pedophilia) into areas that would normally be difficult to access. Without intelligent and logical restraints, computers do have the potential for harm, especially since their intricacy (as with much technology) is only barely understood by the vast majority of the people who use them.

In many ways computers and their ability to connect to the internet seems to be a tremendous blessing. After all, they allow us to access a tremendous amount of information. We can more easily research almost any topic we can think of. Computers can use such a wide variety of programs. They can chec…k our spelling or grammar usage. They allow us to compile vast data bases of information and allow us to access that information in a large variety of ways. With computers we can store or transmit information thus saving on the need to have warehouses of paper of stored information that can be very difficult to search through and locate what we need.

Boon is something that is beneficial to be thankful for. Bane is something that causes misery or death.
If you are sick, medicine is of benefit (assuming you can get it). If anyone you know is sick, medicine is of benefit (assuming they can get it). Medicine is of little help to dead people:- so for them it is indifferent. There are no circumstances under which medicine is noxious.
Technology is both boon and bane. Technology has brought people allover the world together through the ease of communication. Thedisadvantage is that it reduces a person's privacy and thatcommunication has become impersonal rather than relational.
Actually, it is neither. As with every technology (such as radio, the internet, movies, etc) cable TV has both advantages and disadvantages. One advantage to cable is that it can do what is called "niche" broadcasting. That means it can specialize in one thing only-- like all news (CNN) or all weath…er (the Weather Channel) or conservative political programs (Fox News) or all programs about animals (Animal Planet). In that regard, cable TV allows viewers to choose something they personally like and watch lots of programs related to that subject. But while cable was supposed to provide variety, the truth is that the majority of the channels are owned by a handful of giant conglomerates, and the variety is actually somewhat limited by what the conglomerates decide they want to provide, and what they can persuade sponsors to support. Also, since only a small number of cable companies dominate, the cost of cable is kept artificially high and there is little competition. So, in terms of providing lots of programs that appeal to a particular audience, cable TV has been a boon (something positive). But in terms of providing affordable access and a wide range of views, cable TV has not lived up to its promise, although I would hesitate to call it a bane (something that is a curse). Rather, it is one more technology, one more option that people can use, or not use, as they wish. (MORE)
Nuclear energy has both advantages and disadvantages, therefore I would say that it is a bit of both; we could describe it as a mixed blessing. From an environmental perspective, nuclear energy could be a major tool in combatting global warming, because it does not emit greenhouse gases, and therefo…re it can replace other energy sources such as coal burning power plants that do emit greenhouse gases. However, there are other energy sources such as solar power which are even more environmentally sound, so in the end, we may phase out nuclear power, if we can get our act together. Nuclear waste, and the potential for catastrophic nuclear accidents, remain real concerns. (MORE)
Twenty first century is totally ruled by social networking, there exists no doubt in it. Social networking is a online platform to join the people located globally to make them meet at one place to share, chat, earn and do many other things which may not be possible virtually. However, it is still a… point of controversy to decide that social networking, a boon or bane. It ties the people who even we never see or meet them physically that are located far away from our location, but still enhances cross-border friendships and relations. Social networking - a boon Social networking websites are increasing their frontiers with their innovate ideas of making people to meet on a common platform where many activities takes place. Its boon for making the interactions fast and for the below reasons: . Serves the communication with low cost. . Improves relations with friends, relatives and society. . Encourages the talent and creativity through sharing the information and videos of individual performance or thought sharing. . Transforms the communication speedily. . Helps in improving relations which helps in education, job, and business purposes. . Serves in being with the people coming from same platform (engineers, doctors etc.) . Serves in raising help for the poor and to mobilize the required resources for help. . Revolutionises the world by sharing information which tumbled the governments recently. Social networking - a bane Having many advantages, it too bagged the mis-credit for the cons that rose from this social evil. However, people who are not cautious have suffered a lot and are taken advantage of physical, emotional, financial factors. The reasons for which social networking is called bane are: . Increased the interaction with strangers that often lead to dating and relationship failures. . Isolated the people to be online and addicted to its "social" tag which hypes the youth. . Financial frauds are a common scenario that has been revealed. . Revealing of personal information lead to security threat. . Black mailing through personal advantages has been another cause for problem. . Psychological disorders arose from these unwanted relationships. . Cheating, betrayal, abuse are other outcomes of social networking. As balance can be stroked, it is up to the individual's discretion to avoid the risks and avail the opportunities which exists as a boon to the society. Moreover, explicit information that threats or makes information leaked should be stopped which gives access to sensitive personal information. (MORE)

The existence of the human being on this earth is as old as the existence of the Earth itself. As the initial handful population of the world has increased over billions, gradually the human civilization has improved as well. With the passage of the time, things have absolutely changed and keep on c…hanging day by day. But these changes have their merits and demerits. We cannot claim that all the changes and developments that the world has witnessed so far, have been positive and useful for the people. Let us analyze, whether we are actually benefiting from these changes and so called developments, or else we are gaining less at the cost of losing more. Religions might differ on what is the purpose of one's existence in this world. However, all would be uniting on the point that whatever is there in the world should be a source of benefit, comfort, solace and happiness for the humans. But nowadays, we are witnessing that the advent of industrialization and highly sophisticated technologies; instead of providing quality, value, peace of mind and happiness, they have boomeranged on us and proving to be counterproductive for our well being. As per my perception, the life of a laborer and daily wager who somehow manages to earn his daily meals, and has a sound sleep, is far better than those billionaires who resort to sleeping pills to have some rest. Though the industrialization has eased the life of people, by offering a huge range of products, but at the same time, it has snatched away the quality of atmosphere, polluting the air through toxic and poisonous emissions. We feel comfortable and relaxed travelling in planes, trains, buses and cars, but we should be mindful of the fact, that we are equally contributing towards polluting the environment. We have compromised on the quality of life, in exchange for a short-term convenience. Though the life in ancient times was lacking modern amenities, but it had quality, peace and happiness. The industrialization, the norm of packaging each and everything and adulterating products, has resulted in reducing the life expectancy of the people. Earlier, while the life span used to be 80, 90, 100 years and sometimes even more, nowadays we finish off the chapter within our 50s, 60s or 7os. Technology has been making our life faster. There is no full stop to developing technologies. There is always an attempt to replace the existing technology with the latest and most sophisticated one. This has entered in each and every walk of life. The sole purpose of these technologies is to make things easier, faster and time saving. The world is so crazy for technology, that even the water taps are getting fitted with sensors, not requiring you to handle it manually, they will dispense water just upon keeping hands under them. There is a limit of positive use for anything. The technology has gone beyond this limit, minimizing the physical movement, thereby crippling the people gradually. Apparently these technologies have made our life faster, but they have actually narrowed the gap between our lives and deaths. This is only the bounty of the technology that a sizeable population of the world is reeling under a high level of pressure, stress and depression. The faster is the technology, the more will be the consequences. I believe that by achieving industrialization and state-of-the-art technologies, we have not done a fair deal. Instead we have lost freedom, peace of mind, happiness and complacency; and in turn we have been gifted with modern diseases like depression, stress, tension, obsession with materialism and the loss of values. As we have provided ample opportunities, today "stress management" has become a full fledged industry. Clinics offering stress management solutions have mushroomed across the world. They tend to increase in future, as we keep providing fuel to them. It is ridiculous that first we create diseases and problems, then struggle to look for solutions, while we should assess the consequences of our initiatives in the very beginning itself. It is tantamount to promoting tobacco farming and the associated products, then setting up research institutes for finding out remedies to cancer; and it amounts to owning a confectionary when you are a diabetic. There is no use of millions of dollars; there is no benefit of magnificently built homes; there is no meaning of working in air-conditioned buildings walled of glass and provided with the latest world-class amenities; there is no rationale behind carrying and having the state-of-the-art gadgets; if these are eating away our quality of life, our freedom, our relations, our happiness and our sleep. After all, God has created things for us and not created us for them. It is up to us to decide whether we want to let things to overpower us or not. With a slight deviation from the topic, before winding up this discourse, let us examine the amazing role of technology in elevating things from nothing to everything that is actually positive for some, while it is negative for others. There are a number of things which had absolutely no or minimum importance before the emergence of technology. But the technology has dramatically changed the destiny of these things. For instance, let us see the magic of transformation that has happened to cricketers and actors. The glory, fame and glamour they are enjoying today, were a dream a couple of decades ago. The television has played a pivotal role in sensationalizing and catapulting them to the pinnacle of fame and stardom. They have created such a buzz and sensation that our 7-8 years old children aspire to be Sachin Tendulkar, Rajnikanth, Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Roy, Katrina Kaif, Bipasha Basu, Mallika Sherawat, Brad Pit, Angelina Jolie and so on; before aspiring to become Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Einstein, APJ Abdul Kalam and Mother Teressa. These so called cricket and cinema celebrities are considered role models and icons by our young minds. This is so, only because of the immense popularity, fame and money gained at the mercy of the technology, in the absence of which these celebrities would have gone in to oblivion. But what to do, they are seen as if they are our real heroes contributing towards uplifting the life standards of the people. I am not against the popularity, fame and moneymaking of these people. Just I want to highlight the role of technology in getting them huge money and immense fame for entertaining us. They might have their justifications for being rewarded so much for what they do. But the problem is with those who are really working hard to contribute towards nation building. Let us take the example of our scientists working day and night in research centers and laboratories; and the example of university lecturers/professors who do a noble job for the society. The money earned by them throughout their entire career hardly goes up to 3-4 crores. But for these cricketers and actors, it is just a matter of smashing a couple of boundaries and shaking legs for a few minutes. We should not have any grouse against making money in this manner, as we are not paying them from our pocket, but what really pains is that all the people are not getting their due compensation for the works which are far more constructive than handling bat/balls and shaking legs. The former has no adverse impact while the later distracts attention from doing things which are really constructive for the nation. This is a painful phenomenon that a move on "Sheela Ki Jawani" "Munni Badnam Hui" and "Ooo La La" is more powerful than toiling day and night and breaking head throughout the day to earn a meager sum. Let us think on the above, and strive towards making our life happy. Let us resolve to not let the external forces dominate and dictate terms in our life. Let us also nurture the culture of awarding things only their due importance and see how beautifully it shapes our life. To lead a happy life, it doesn't necessarily demand for money beyond a limit; it doesn't either demand to live in an industrialized world; and it doesn't necessarily ask for totally relying on technologies as well. -- (MORE)

According to me the computer is boon to mankind. People are helpless without computer. Today it is the employments of millions of people.

Taking out a loan can be either beneficial or harmful, a boon or a bane, depending upon the purpose of the loan. Money spent wisely can make your life better; money spent foolishly can make your life worse.
It is a great benefit to millions of people, it is a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature and purpose of the universe. It contains a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs. However, noninterference in private matters of faith would be a distinct advantage in the world
